Invoiced quantity should get checked against the accepted quantity ie Invoiced qty can be equal or less than the (accepted qty-paidqty till now)

Material value should get calculated again from po and must get tallied with GRN value and The total of Item value must tally with the supplier invoice value

If any difference arises that should get reconcilied by giving valid entry in bills approval screen
